This website portal (images) was developed for the American Polish Advisory Council (APAC), a public policy organization based in Washington, DC, pursuing a consensus based agenda of issues important to the Polish American community. More than a century ago, the first waves of Polish immigrants began settling in the US, and subsequent generations are now firmly a part of American cultural, economic, and civic life. This community is cohesive - and they retain active ties to their own or their parents' homeland. Now, with Russia's restive and unpredictable miltary adventurism along the borders of the old Soviet Union, these connections have become increasingly important - Poland is a NATO ally, and borders Russia. This website is the portal to news and announcements from APAC, hosts an event management capability, and provides a gateway to a database of Polish-American candidates, elected and appointed officials of interest to the community. The site handles donations, crosslinks social media, manages event reservations and payments, and aggregates published news media and releases. [Link to the live site.]
